My boyfriend and I celebrated our joint birthdays here. We had a fantastic night. The staff were lovely and polite. Good musical and very specious rooms, which don't get over packed. A great night out all round!

Myself and husband went to the house of burlesque as part of a city break. We were thoroughly entertained, the host , Tempest Rose was a fabulous and warmed the audience up brilliantly. For the first hour there were 2 for 1 offers on cocktails making it even better. Great atmosphere and such a laugh. We will recommend to friends... More

My friend suggested that we go to Sway on a Friday afternoon for fish and chips lunch. We originally wanted to go to Leon but the queue was so long! When we got there, Sway was not busy and it was quiet. The waiter told us that they were having problems with their grill so certain items on the menu... More

We were in the local area for an afternoon tea next door in the Kingsway Hall Hotel and decided to go for a few drinks after. We called to reserve a table for 15 people for drinks at 4pm - opening time. To do this you have to pay £25 deposit to be redeemed in your bar tab. When we... More

We went to sway for the dream boys (a birthday party) it was so much fun, after the show it turned into a club and it wasn't expensive. We drank and danced all night, it had 2 different music rooms so we danced all night.

Show was really fun. Wasn't expecting it to be as good. Really professional and excellent value for money. Then upstairs to the restaurant for pizza, and small plates. Very nice. Used half price Jan offer (watch out for service charge £7). Then downstairs for music and a bop - really nice crowd and music was good. All in all a... More

Avoid. Don't be fooled, this place is not somewhere which deserves your patronage. Bar service is slow. Really slow. Twenty minutes slow and it's not even busy and yet you don't have enough staff to serve your customers. This is unacceptable and the sole reason we won't be back. Table service is slow. Redeeming factor is that the food is... More
